    Question: Do rats drag race, or do they prefer circle track?

    In my experience, they prefer to race in a Time Trial, or if they get in a drag race, it's usually with a cat or a hawk!

    Prices on practically everything go up 20%+, and the government says inflation is less than 5%. There's a whopper for you. Employer says, "you're doing fine", but no raise (again). The rats are whizzing past me like I'm a glacier, and they're on land speeders.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    I decided a long time ago that I wasn't going to race. I'm happy with my life and where I am in life. So, I guess I have won.

    You should have bought a squirrel...



    Incidently, the Rat Race is a cool multi-discipline adventure competition that includes cycling. It's like an urban version of Eco-Challenge.

    BTW, I've corrected the thread title.

    That is part of the joke Stacey. He wrote a trilogy and then added two more volumes many years later.

    They will drag race but they seem to resent wearing those cute little gowns and stick-on tiaras. Slows the little rodents down too.

    Yeah, I won. Because I don't care. And Mr Termite, I moved it. A previous CEO actually handed out copies as our Christmas bonus one year instead of cash. Blah.

    I'm more than capable of getting out of NJ on my own, right now it's just a matter of family and friends keeping me here.

    I have a board game called "Rat Race". I have one at that game a couple of times. Does that count?
